Google’s 2016 Nexus Phone Might Not Be Called “Nexus Phones”


A brand new stories claims this yr’s Nexus 2016 telephones won't use the long-standing Nexus logo identify

This yr’s Nexus telephones, incessantly known as Google’s 2016 Nexus Telephones, will it sounds as if now not lift any Nexus branding in any way. No, in keeping with studies, those new Nexus telephones will pass through a completely other identify — although nobody turns out to understand what that identify in reality is simply but.

According to Android Central, Google WILL drop the Nexus logo this yr and the cause of that is it sounds as if relatively easy: Google needs the “Google” logo entrance and middle.

The most obvious naming conference, no less than within the opinion of this author, is Pixel; Google already has the Pixel C tablet and the Pixel Chromebook, a Pixel phone turns out like a logical subsequent step.

HTC is believed to be creating this year’s Nexus phones, however the corporate’s branding won't function any place at the handsets, allegedly. Google is it sounds as if very all in favour of impressing that those telephones are GOOGLE telephones, now not HTC ones.

“This yr's Google telephones will function further device and a tweaked interface atop "vanilla" Android,” stories Android Central. “This may increasingly particularly differentiate the brand new fashions in relation to device revel in from earlier years' Nexus telephones, which featured a rather barebones Android revel in — and this is going hand-in-hand with the verdict not to use the "Nexus" identify for the telephones.”

Google has lengthy maintained that it needs to play a extra lively position within the advent and dissemination of hardware. The corporate has quite respectable pedigree too on the subject of commercial design; simply take a look at the Chromebook Pixel, as an example, which is among the best-looking computer systems on the earth.

Google could also be willing to have its personal canine within the Android race as smartly. Much more so now that Samsung and Huawei are brazenly discussing lifestyles out of doors the Android ecosystem. With a bespoke Android phone evolved through the very creators the tool platform, Google can pressure exchange and innovation within the Android area far more than it would just by offering source code to its hardware companions.

Couple this with the expansion of VR in 2016/17 and also you begin to see the place that is going. The one factor I'm fairly at a loss for words about is why Google has to drop the Nexus logo itself? I imply, everyone is aware of Nexus stands for Natural Android direct from Google? I don’t see why it’d need to get started ALL all over again with a brand spanking new unfamiliar identify for its telephones?

Nexus telephones are rattling well-liked and Google taking extra keep an eye on over them one day would best serve so as to add to their attraction.

Abnormal transfer, however I do like the theory of Google taking a extra hands-on strategy to its home-brew Android telephones.

What about you?
